GALLERY: Junior soccer gets luxurious twist in 2018

SOCCER is a little more luxurious this season, and sporty kids who work up a sweat can freshen up with a nice hot shower in the recently refurbished change rooms.

Southern Downs Regional Councillors, club officials and members officially opened the season and the new club house amenities

Warwick District Football Association vice president Peter Darton the new hot showers would increase social participation after games.

"The change rooms have hot showers allowing our players to have showers and freshen up after games and stay around for social activities."

The first day was a big success, with kids signing on, meeting their coaches and trying on their brand new jerseys for the first time.

More than 300 young soccer fanatics have already signed up in what will be another huge year with 36 teams taking to the park every Saturday morning.

Warwick Wolves registrar Rob Davey said junior numbers had traditionally been strong for the club.

"This year is certainly no different, we've still been signing kids up over the last few days," he said.

Mr Darton was looking forward to a jam-packed season ahead.

"We hope to see as many people as possible enjoy playing soccer and improve their skills in the game.

"It would be also great to see people getting involved with the coaching and helping out with other aspects of the club."
